The more of God, the more of me

Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study
"Each actuality, in differing from God, testifies to the fullness of God's actuality.  Indeed, the 'ever greater unlikeness' of the proportion means that the 'likeness' is itself ever greater the more fully anything is what it is, the more it grows into the measure of its difference, the more profoundly it drinks from the transcendent moments that compose it and allow all its modes of disclosure to speak of God's infinite goodness."
